The best way to discover the city is on foot especially the old part which embraces Porto Antico Genoa's port which was revitalized during the 1990's and it is now a main tourist attraction with its many cafes and restaurants. Local buses can be used for around the city but you need to buy in advance your tickets from the local tobacco shops or newspaper stands. Taxis are easily available and are best booked through your hotel.
The Aeroporto Cristoforo Colombo is the local airport just 6 km west of the city centre. Regular airport buses will take you every 30 minutes to the edge of the Old Town or Piazza Verdi outside the train station. The city has 2 main train stations the Stazione Pincipe on Piazza Acquaverde and Stazione Brignole on Piazza Verdi.
